WHAT YOU WILL BE LEARNING ABOUT The coasts are one of the most exciting places to forage, each time the tide recedes we get the opportunity to explore the foreshore and gather a bounty of unique treasures. It is packed with a large diversity nutrient rich food and wonderful flavours. Learning about coastal foraging is also my number one recommended activity for reconnecting you to the natural world as these specialist course's are highly conducive to natures rhythms. There is a good variety of shellfish that can be foraged in the West Sussex and some choice edibles that are highly prized. Foraging shellfish requires a high level of dexterity to do it safely and sustainably. We give guidance to put you on the right track to make safe and nature conscious decisions. Foraging shellfish is largely a Winter activity, seasonality is a key factor to both the safety and sustainability aspects of gathering shellfish. On the course we will teach how to safely and sustainably locate, identify, gather and cook a variety of shellfish. The course is highly conducive to season and natures rhythms and the course times are allocated to when the tide is at its lowest so we can access the rich resources exposed as the tide recedes.
